TracPlus Tracker for iPhone is an app that turns your iPhone into a GPS tracker, and the tracking information can be displayed within the TracPlus software. Please note this app relies on your iPhone's cellular data connection. If the cellular data connection is turned off or you are outside of cellular coverage, then the phone will not be able to connect to our servers.
You can download the TracPlus Tracker App from the App store here.
If you do not have an account with TracPlus please read the New Account and New Assets page for details. You will need to fill in the attached form, sign, and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following are the details you will need to get the app up and working on your iPhone and tracking in TracPlus Software.

Find your Device ID: Your device ID is your Wifi address which is found on your iPhone by going to 'Settings->General->About.' TracPlus will need this information to identify the messages coming from your device.
You will also need to ensure “location services” are enabled on your iPhone. Please be aware that when tracking your phone will be working quite hard and you should monitor battery levels while testing.
You can set how often TracPlus Tracker will send a GPS position and if you want a different rate for when you are stationary to when you are moving. The Distress rate is the frequency of a distress message being sent.
TracPlus recommends a tracking rate of 2 to 5 minutes for flying assets, 5 to 15 minutes for moving vehicles and 5 to 30 minutes for a person walking.
The 'Unit' options are for how the GPS positions are displayed in the App.
